Sea Gate

Sea Gate is a private gated community at the far western end of Coney Island in southwest Brooklyn. The neighborhood is one of the few areas of New York to still be surrounded by waterfront. This family-friendly neighborhood contains mostly single-family homes, some directly on Gravesend Bay. The unique ocean-side atmosphere is evoked by the various home styles. The area can feel very exclusive, due to its limited transportation options. Residents of this ocean-side community take pride in their neighborhood, and often refer to the exclusive enclave as "in the gate".

Sea Gate was once known as Norton's Point. "Norton" was the name of the owner of a casino, which was situated where the Coney Island Light now stands. The neighborhood held a reputation for gambling before it was developed into a residential neighborhood. Much of the neighborhood’s identity is morphed with its continuing recovery efforts after the area was almost completely destroyed by Hurricane Sandy.

Sea Gate truly is a small neighborhood and there are no stores. The area mostly consists of the Private Beach which also has two parks: Beach Reservation, or “Lindy Park” as its often referred to has breathtaking Verrazano Bridge views and a playground with a basketball court and children's jungle gym pieces next to the Sea Gate Community Center on Surf Avenue. There are two landmarks in Sea Gate. Located on Beach 47th Street in Sea Gate is the 75-foot-tall Coney Island Light, a lighthouse built in 1890 and the chapel in Sea Gate, once used for services and built in 1901that is now used for social events, yoga classes, and is a polling site at election times.

The neighborhood is slowly rebuilding after the devastation from Hurricane Sandy in 2012. Many of its homes were torn apart, and the modest protections against the sea that were in place prior to Sandy were destroyed, which impacted much of the real estate market in Sea Gate. Currently, Sea Gate is largely populated by families living in single- and two-family houses and is made up of 832 single-family houses in a variety of architectural styles, including Queen Anne Style and Mediterranean. Most Sea Gate apartments are either part of a duplex or possibly a house rental, although the area has a few apartment buildings.
